Welcome to the biggest green energy event in the Northeast
NESEA, its Zero Net Energy Award, and GBOH have completely changed my priorities and expectations for a house. Now, it’s not ‘high design’ if it’s not zero net energy.” — Laura MacKay, GBOH attendee
NESEA’s Green Buildings Open House (GBOH) is the biggest sustainable energy event in the northeastern United States. In 2012, nearly 10,000 people toured over 400 homes, businesses, and public buildings showcasing energy-efficient design, systems, and products as well as renewables. GBOH visitors see first hand the energy improvements in their communities. They can experience a house so efficient that it needs no heating system, smell for themselves that a composting toilet doesn’t, or see cogeneration in action. It should be no surprise that NESEA members are often behind the designs, upgrades, and products seen on the tour.
GBOH operates in conjunction with the American Solar Energy Society’s National Solar Tour and helps kick off National Energy Action Month.
